The Fugitive Reviews

Bill Clark

In many ways The Fugitive represents the pinnacle of a genre not much in style any more: the suspense/action picture.

Creative Loafing

Directed for maximum impact by Andrew Davis, this contains enough suspenseful set-pieces, clever red herrings and spectacular stuntwork to satisfy most thriller aficionados, yet what really makes the movie work are the performances by Ford and Jones.

Just when you thought the movies had been given over to special effects departments and the high-tech fantasies that sustain them, along comes The Fugitive -- a good, old-fashioned drama with unsettling shivers of suspense.

The film is little more than a well-oiled machine that serves a strictly limited function, but like a precision timepiece, it is a thing to marvel at, even under close scrutiny.

Ford is fine as the innocent surgeon who is wrongfully convicted of the murder of his wife and sets off to find the real killer. But the movie is stolen from under his nose by Tommy Lee Jones, who gives an Oscar-winning performance.

The film treats this profoundly preposterous plot as if it were a serious idea.

While there are actors in this film, there isn't much room for acting. The rapid editing and near-absence of dialogue reduces the actors to action figures with colorful labels pasted on their foreheads.

The Fugitive is a super-adrenalized stemwinder, a crisp and jolting melodrama that screws the tension so pitilessly tight it does everything but squeak.

It's a pleasure to find a thriller fulfilling its duties with such gusto: the emotions ring solid, the script finds time to relax into backchat, and for once the stunts look like acts of desperation rather than shows of prowess.

It isn't just a high-powered summer blockbuster. It's something cannier (and rarer): a suspense thriller rooted in character.
